MASS - Modular Armored Shields

Patent No. 7,051,637 "Modular Armor Shield" 

Upgrade your existing Entry Control Points (ECP), machine gun emplacements and fighting positions from the concrete barriers, water-filled barrels or sandbags you're now using, to the patented STS armored security barriers. The latest technology in ballistic rated armor protection.

This armored shield barrier system is modular in design and can be arranged in any size or configuration required to meet your mission requirements or changing threat conditions.

An upgraded ECP provides better visibility and protection for personnel, and can be easily reconfigured or relocated as your requirements change.
The modular design allows you to construct new security points of any size or shape from just two standard shield types, straight or corner.

Gun mounts and equipment hangers can be installed on any shield section, or relocated to another shield with just a single wrench.

Optional Accessories

Any shield section can also include a weapon mounting point as illustrated.
